Happy Healthy Holidays!
Latkes are crisp fried Jewish Lighter Latkes - also known as potato pancakes - with eggs, onion, matzo meal and seasonings. Latkes are usually served with applesauce and sour cream. Latkes were supposedly served by the wives of the Maccabees to their husbands as they prepared to drive the ancient Syrians from their land. Latkes are eaten during Chanukah, the Feast of Lights, to commemorate the victory.
For best results, use baking potatoes instead of boiling potatoes.
Brush a baking sheet with a scant teaspoon of oil.
Follow your favorite latke batter recipe. Drop the latke batter onto the baking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes at 450 degrees.
Turn and bake 6 minutes longer or until crisp.
Fresh homemade applesauce spiced with fragrant ground cinnamon makes the perfect side dish.
